that the new egyptian government has a set of policies about which we are not yet certain. i think there was a lot of discomfort correctly in this country when these attacks took place last week, an american ambassador was killed, a friend of the arab people, and the egyptian president did not say and do the kinds of things that the libyan government said and did. there was a caution, there was a hesitation of alienating the extremist islamic groups in egypt, something the libyan people, libyan government didn't do and then the libyan government encouraged and participated in tens of thousands of libyans coming out on the streets and expressing their support for the united states and regretted the killing of an ambassador. those things haven't happened in egypt. so president morsi is walking a fine line, but he's contributing by refusing while in egypt to say and do the things that he will say to western businessmen and will say while he's here in the united states. >> the president is now at the united nations. we'll take a quick break and when we come back, the president's speech
